healthcarery form. this man promised to repeal healthcare and take coverage away from 30 to 40 million americans. this man killed legislation which would have created millions of jobs in america. he couldn't even get a farm bill passed this past week. a farm bill? we can't even do that? america? so here is my question. do you really trust this man to get comprehensive immigration reform done in america under obama? >> we know that border security is absolutely essential. that if we're going to give people confidence to do the rest of what is being suggested, and i frankly think the senate bill is weak, on border security, i think the internal enforcement mechanisms are weak and triggers are almost laughable. and so, if they are serious about getting an immigration bill finished, i think that the president sent democrats reach out to democrat republican colleagues, to build broad bipartisan support for the bill. >> in other words, we're not going to pass it. the real story isn't about border security. that's the red herring. they will never be happy about border security. it is
